Sky Chadde is the Midwest Center’s Gannett Agricultural Data Fellow. He can be reached at sky.chadde@investigatemidwest.org.

As of Nov. 20, there have been at least 42,000 reported positive cases tied to meat and poultry processing facilities in at least 474 plants in 40 states, and at least 221 reported worker deaths in at least 51 plants in 27 states.

*Not all plants with outbreaks are on the above map. Only about half of all plants with outbreaks have been publicly identified, so the unidentified plants, where a specific location is not known, are not included on this map. To search or download the full list, scroll down to the spreadsheet.

Hover your mouse over each state to see the total number in each state.

Using news reports, company press releases, state and federal data and original reporting, we're keeping track of the coronavirus's effect on the meatpacking industry, including positive cases among workers and employee deaths. We've incorporated figures released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on May 1 and July 7.

We'll continue updating through the outbreak. Numbers are updated every Friday.

You can search by company name or location (city, county, state). Each plant has the following information:

  • the number of positive cases tied to it
  • the number of workers who worked at the plant who died, if deaths have been reported
  • the date positive cases at the plant were first reported in the media (this is NOT when workers tested positive)
  • if the plant closed down at some point, the date it closed down and the date of its reopening
  • if it's available, the total number of workers at the plant and the number of workers who were tested
  • the type of meat processed at the facility
  • the USDA establishment number
  • the total number of meatpacking cases in the state in which the plant is located
  • the total number of meatpacking deaths in the state which the plant is located

If a row has "unknown" in all the columns, that means CDC or state data has not identified the plant with the outbreak. We include these in the database to note how many plants in each state actually have outbreaks.

Kansas and North Carolina have started updating their figures on meatpacking cases regularly online. Most states still do not. So those states' figures are much more heavily reflected in this database.

Click the green button to see the additional information, sources used and links to the original articles.

Almost half of the facilities that have outbreaks have not been identified at this time, and about a third of the workers who have died have not been linked to a particular plant (the CDC only reports aggregate figures). If you have information on facilities that haven't had outbreaks reported publicly yet or on plants with worker deaths not publicly reported, let us know at sky.chadde@investigatemidwest.org, or visit our page on how to share information with us securely.

If you are a meatpacking worker or an FSIS inspector and have a tip to share, visit the page on how to contact us securely.

METHODOLOGY: "Tied to" includes positive tests among workers and people who interacted with workers, such as family members; it's primarily workers who have tested positive. If that distinction has been reported, we note it in the database. We are not including in the count incidents where "many," "numerous," etc. were used, and we're rounding down if numbers are reported as approximate.

Data that breaks down at what workplace an outbreak occurred is hard to come by. The first state that put data online that includes the setting of an outbreak is Colorado. On Sept. 9, Kansas started putting that information online. Because of that, we're basing most of our count on numbers that have been reported in news stories.

It's also difficult to get exact numbers because some companies, some states and some unions have refused to release or confirm numbers.

In Brown County, Wisconsin, which has three plants with large outbreaks, local health officials told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel they've stopped tracking cases to the plants because it was time-consuming. Virginia officials, though they released data on nursing homes, said they wouldn't do the same for poultry plants because of privacy concerns, according to the Virginia Mercury. Iowa state officials disclosed an inaccurate count related to one facility, the Associated Press found.

Also, when Senators Elizabeth Warren and Cory Booker requested industry giants tally the number of infected and dead workers at their plants, the companies did not provide figures.

So it's possible the overall figures are an undercount.

The figures the CDC has released are through May and don't include every state with outbreaks. The figures lag behind other reporting. For instance, the CDC says one worker in Georgia has died from COVID-19, but in mid-April a Tyson spokesperson told the Associated Press at least four of the company's workers in Georgia had died. When reporting reflects local or state figures that are higher than the CDC's, we have used the local/state figures.

We've also incorporated documents obtained by the Documenting COVID-19 project at The Brown Institute for Media Innovation.

We are not counting outbreaks at seafood processing plants. To verify whether a facility is a meatpacking plant, we check against the USDA's list of establishments. (Meatpacking plants have establishment numbers that begin with Ms or Ps.)

Note: On May 31, we changed the design of our database to include more information for each plant in each row.

We're thankful for the great reporting other outlets are doing that allow us to do this.
